More June/July concerts???

Post by jarkko » Sun Mar 23, 2008 11:37 am

Here follows a summary and my comments of some new dates that have been discussed on the Forum, announced by the venues in question, or informed elsewhere on the web. Please note that it is more than probable that some of this information is false. So wait for confirmation! And don't buy tickets from unofficial scalper/tout websites at ridiculously high prices - wait for the official booking to begin!

I'm keeping the confirmed dates with booking info updated at

DUBLIN June 13: announces that a third concert in Dublin goes on sale next Wednesday March 26 at 9 am. This date has not yet been 100 % confirmed but I added it to the list (and will take it off if it turns to be false).

BUCHAREST JULY 14: I have not yet listed it because of missing venue etc. info (it's announced at

JULY 18: Pollstar lists a second London 02 gig here but it is not listed nor confirmed by AEG - also ticketmaster does not list it. It remains to be seen whether this is false or not.

JULY 28: is announcing a concert in Rome for this day, with ticket booking beginning on March 25. This is not listed nor confirmed by AEG. Another big question mark. I have asked for advice.

JULY 29: Lycabettus in Athens is the tentative entry here. Waiting for confirmation & booking info, that's why it is not yet on the list.

JULY 31: remains to be seen!

AUGUST: Big Chill (August 3 in UK) has been confirmed, all the others are to be announced sooner or later.

:D Hello Jarkko, I know the UK is being well catered for but do you have any info on the remaining gig at The Manchester Opera House. All I can find is a reference to the Guardian Newspaper and thats it. Wugwell.

I still have a hunch that July 31st could be Cambridge folk festival - I certainly hope so - I'm going anyway, so to have LC there as well would be special. The list of artists for this wonderful festival has still not been announced, which, I think, is later than normal. Just speculating!

Hi Kettering
Cambridge would be brilliant; but they would probably anounce LC's appearence prior to ticket sales...all conjecture though....Now; Corby Grampian Club...there's a venue !!!
If yourt going to Mancester on the 17tth and need a lift from Corby south 8) ...give us a shout !

Hi Kettering,

My sister (who attends the Cambridge Folk Festival) tells me that July 31st is a Thursday, and on the Thursday they usually only have local bands, and no main stage. However, for those going, it would be nice if they changed the format this year.

All the best, John E

Missed tickets for Manchester, Edinburgh, Dublin and London but managed today to get a ticket for extra date in Dublin. Now find that tickets for Edinburgh are being auctioned by Ticketmaster. Am I naive or justifiably peeved that the nearest venue is now available again given enough money. How can Ticketmaster say all Edinburgh seats are sold when they are auctioning huge numbers of premium seats?

See my comments on "TicketMaster auctioning Edinburgh tickets" thread below.

There are three possibilities here :

1)the tickets were sent out to an agent who has returned them and TM decided to auction them (seems unlikely although Edinburgh sales were slower than the rest of the UK).

2) TM always hold a few tickets back and in this case, given the Edinburgh seats didn't sell out at once like the rest of the UK, is testing the water with an auction, starting at a reasonable price, not being sure they will sell at an inflated one on TE.

or 3) these are tickets from the artists/tour crew allocation which they don't need and have returned to TM for resale. Quite often when the artists do this they ask for them to be disposed of fairly and profits given to charity.

The seats being auctioned are GOOD ones and at £60 well worth it if you can get them for that price or close. It seems fairer to me than TE. However as someone else points out in the thread below, with TM auctions, it is not like Ebay. On TM your auction offer price is the one you are committed to. So you could bid £200 and someone else £100 and if there were enough seats, both bids would stand. I suppose you could bid what you thought the tickets were worth, and leave it at that. That is what I often do when I am buying something on Ebay but of course that is a one off.

The Edinburgh auction lasts a fortnight.
